i also think the teams that need a #1 might think twice about overpaying for a Schneider or Bernier when they could get Harding for nothing as a UFA.

Could he be the next Mike Smith?
Harding is one of the best #2 goalies in the NHL, but he has not shown the ability to stay in the line-up over the course of an NHL season. Based on his history of injuries, I would not trust him as a #1 goalie for my squad.
